check out VM Ware server, I haven't used it but the idea has crossed my mind before. The only thing is if it is just a single cpu you'll have performance issues. And I haven't checked into it fully but it's worth your while checking it out.

Well I'll be a monkeys uncle there is a way to do it. But it does seem like a lot of hassle the more people you add.

You need a n-computing box. Not sure if you will save any money.

You need some thing other than two monitors and two mice.
